Cancelled Wedding???

Recommended Posts

I believe that everything happens for a reason and you will be a better person regardless of what the outcome is.

 

Right now all you want is the hurting to stop - it will. Keep your head up and stay strong for those kiddos!!

I absolutely agree with this comment. I am a therapist and know the value of getting some outside perspective. A counselling session can help find out whats going on and get the real issues out in a safe and non-threatening manner. Either way, all is not lost. Keep your head up, and know that regardless of the outcome good things can come from this, whether it is making the relationship stronger, or learning more about yourself. My wishes are with you!!!

Hi Hun I really hope that reading all these post makes you feel better!Its such an awful situation. But remember nothing is ever final (except death and taxes :))

 

I hope I don't get jumped on but my very rational father has rubbed off on me over the years....Just to play devils advocate.....Is it possible that there was a situation where he was inviting you just out of habit or to be kind where wives or fI may not really be invited and its just protocol? Have his work friends become closer to work friend where it may be his "statuary" and you caught him off-guard by saying yes?

 

Now that said I do not think his reaction was correct or that uninviting you , saying he was embarrassed or asking fr the ring back was the right thing to do in anyway...

 

it sounds like it may have gotten very heated...My suggestion would be to set up some time to talk outside of your normal hangouts with out the kids....Try to really listen to where this all came from digest it and then after seeing through his eyes the situation tell him how it made you feel and that his comments hurt you...take some time to digest all this information so both of you can make an informed decision on how to proceed with your relationship

 

Take some deep breaths and just keep telling yourself..."you can do this!!!"

I am so very very sorry that you are going through this, sweetie. My heart is truly breaking for you. My post may be long, but I think it is important. Some of this may hurt to hear, but please listen. Here is my take on the situation based on what you've told.
As was said above, the way he is talking to you is abuse. It may not be visible on the outside, but it is abuse. Honestly, I feel it is the worst kind of abuse. I know from experience.
You can (and should) have a good talk with him. BUT, it really does need to come in the form of being under supervision of a counselor/therapist, etc. That part is important, because from what you've wrote, if you do it alone I believe that he is only going to cut you down and make you feel like you are the one who is wrong.
You don't need that, not now, not ever! If he refuses to see someone to work things out, it is time for you to move on.
I realize you say you don't know who you are without him. Trust me when I say, I understand this feeling. It is probably one of the worst feelings to get over, but I promise, it will pass. You don't realize who you are without him because he has convinced you that you are nothing without him. Don't believe it, dear!! It is the furthest from the truth!!!
No man in love with a woman should ever feel embarrassed by her. If he cannot or will not change this, he's not the man you deserve, and by far, he does not deserve you.
If things cannot be worked out between the two of you, I am sorry. It will be a difficult thing for you to walk away, but you will come out a stronger woman. Put on some upbeat, woman-rising-to-the-top type music, it's crazy how much it can help!
Finally...a strong reason I sense he's emotionally abusing you...feeling you need to apologize to us for posting this thread. Sweetie, all of us here, on BDW, are here for you every step of the way and never do you need to apologize for needing a shoulder to cry on! grouphug.gif
Hang in there and keep us posted. We're worried about you and would love to know if you're doing okay. smile03.gif

First off, I agree with MarieSam and much of what the other ladies said on here. I'll try not to repeat everything. I hope I am not to harsh but it sounds to me like he was just looking for a reason to get out and was waiting for any small fight to make that happen. This is not your fault and you should not in any way blame yourself, he obviously needs to grow up and learn how to be a man. How dare he make you feel like this?! What kind of man does this? What a coward! Obviously there is some real underlying problems that need to be discussed that he has been hiding. If its at all possible to talk to the coward then do so and get to the bottom of things. I can't imagine that he will be truthful so trust your gut and not your heart. Honestly it sounds like he is cheating or at least has someone else in mind and was looking for a way out. I don't mean to upset you but a man that is truely in love does not do this.

 

I hope for you and your childrens' sake that he simply is getting cold feet and things can be worked out. If not I want to assure you from experience that life does go on and there will be something better for you. I never thought I could leave my loveless marriage to an a-hole of a man but I did and my children are better off for it. Now they see what a real relationship is suppose to be like and are not a part of an angry household any longer.

 

Its an amazing feeling when you respect yourself and it will give you the strenght to get through this. Regardless of the outcome make sure you stand up for yourself or he will walk all over you for years to come.

 

Please keep us posted, we are all here for you! Big Hugs!

Ladies Thank you so much for all of your advice, encouragement and support. I guess I should have clarified a few things. What I meant by saying that things would change after we were married is that the company he works for is large so for most events you can only bring someone if you are married. And now that we're engaged I thought it would be different in regards to that.

 

But either way, I was really hurt by everything that happened and was really surprised when everything blew up the way it did, because I didn't see it coming. I spoke to him a little yesterday. He came home during the day so we could talk while the kids were at school. He apologized, and I forgive him, but I also told him that at this point I just need a little time to really clear my head before I make any life-changing decisions. I told him what I thought and how it was completely unacceptable. He says they will and understands that nothing he says will prove that, only time and actions. All I can do now really is wait to see.

 

Thank you again everyone . undecided.gif

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
